Question about Magellan Maestro 4000 Handheld GPS Receiver
Bought new without power cord. Other GPS units power up fine with either car adapter to small "usb" type of inlet or a wall adapter. This does not even give indication that it recognizes power available to it. It is brand new from the store.
I had the same problem and I solved it by cutting a few strands of speaker wire and twisting them together and inserting them into the center of the generic car gharger end which plugs into the Maestro 4000, It seems that the 4000 has a very small center conducter on the GPS itself and by adding a few strands of speaker wire about 1/2" long into the plug before pluging it into the 4000 it allows it to makes contact with the small power inlet conductor which is smaller than most generic cigarette lighter 5vdc power cords. I did this to mine and it powered up right away. The other solution is to buy the actual car power cord from Magellan which has the proper size connecton and makes proper connection all the time.
